I don’t know who needs to hear this today, but please stop telling EVERYBODY your business! Especially in a workplace environment. Those people that you think are close to you whether they are your coworkers, “friends”, heck sadly even family members are usually not as close to you as they may seem. As the post above suggests, 7 times out if 10 people will only talk to you just to talk about you. As sad as this sounds, unfortunately this is the truth. As soon as someone gets information out of you that they feel can “harm” you, they run and tell other people your business, sometimes even altering your words. This ends up leading to nothing but nasty rumors and gossip. Typically, people who do this are usually jealous of you and tend to get off on your misery. These people are very manipulative and tend to try and get as close as possible to you in order to get the information out of you that they want. The only way to prevent this from happening is to just keep your conversations short and keep things to yourself that do not need to be said out loud. Keep that guard up and watch how they move! Think about it this way, if they are willing to discuss people’s business with you and gossip, what do you think they are doing behind your back?
